HSP may notice an addition to our facility, and wonder
why or how it got there. Each year at
Christmas time, the capacity needed for our Christmas Offering, and other
projects, exceeds the storage capacity of our center. Yesterday, National Van Lines kindly
delivered a trailer to HSP to alleviate that problem. The trailer was delivered by Michael Graham,
a National Van Lines driver from , who happened to be in town. The trailer will be
parked next to our dock until after Christmas, where it will serve as temporary
storage for the gifts given to the needy children served by our Christmas
Offering. We are grateful to have the trailer measuring an additional 2500
cubic feet in storage capacity; and it has been given to California HSP free of cost over the holiday season. We thank Maureen
Beal President of National Van Lines for helping provide a convenient solution
to our limited space in the holiday season.
The space added by the trailer is used to house our gifts for the Christmas Offering. The Christmas Offering provides gifts to children in the area for the holidays. In the Christmas Offering, each child receives at least three gifts; and, with large amounts of committed donors, we maximize our outreach to local youths. The trailer that has been provided gives us the ability to harbor more gifts to serve more families, and help add cheer to more homes this holiday season.
